In the multi-cam sitcom, written by Joe Port and Joe Wiseman (The Office, Just Shoot Me), Will Greenberg (a recent guest star on The Office) has been tapped to star as Joe Waxman, an author caught in an ongoing war between two needy, flawed people — his wife Jane (Army Wives‘ Sally Pressman) and his ladies man co-author/BFF Joe Dougan (Brothers & Sisters‘ Dave Annable).

In addition to Greenberg’s casting, Lauren Lapkus (Are You There, Chelsea?) and Asif Ali have joined the pilot’s ensemble in the roles of Melissa and Matt.

Daily Show correspondent Larry Wilmore co-stars as Jane’s recently divorced stepfather.

The project is based on the real life of Joe Wiseman and the complicated relationship between his manipulative wife Jane and his best friend Joe.

  • I don’t have a lot of faith in Partners 2.0 succeeding, but I’d give it a chance because of Dave Annable.

  • Yeah this will go the same way Partners went. Clearly no body even cares too much about the show to comment…

  • I saw the Pilot tonight. It feels like a combination of whats selling right now. Annabelles character is womanizing man-child, a combination of Joey from friends and Barney on How I Met Your Mother. Asif Ali is the Joes manager and is another horn dog character, however in the pilot a newly wed. Sally Pressman does a skarky yet sweet working mother. Will Greenberg is Janes husband Joe and Lauren Lapkus is Janes best friend and back house free loader. They both get to be quirky nerdy and their chemistry is hilarious as Joe really cant stand her presence and she is convinced the step father is the one wearing out his welcome. It wasnt clear if the Joes lived together or just spent all their time together working on kids books. The role of the couples daughter was Mckenna…( sorry dont know this whole name but some one said she has a Disney credit) and she would kick the young Oslen Twins ass in a cute fight.
    My overall impression is that it can a great family sitcom, will probably sell to people over 30.

  • I auditioned for this and remember really struggling to find any humor at all in the parts of the script I was given.
